6 Fun and Easy Activities to do with your Kids during Lockdown!
Spending time at home during Lockdown has allowed us all to get a lot more creative with how we keep ourselves entertained - from binging Netflix series to finally finishing those DIY house projects... but for those with kids in the house, this can be a little more challenging!
With the absence of school, group sports, and regular play dates, what can you do with your kids that doesn’t involve endless screen time?
We’ve put together a few fun and easy ways you can keep your children engaged and explore the world through creativity!
Get Painty with our Online Tutorials!Our free step by step painting tutorials are a great way for you to jumpstart your artistic journey with your kids!

Write to a Pen Pal!
Remember having a pen pal? In this digital age, the art of letter writing has gotten lost in the sea of technology!

Create a Scavenger Hunt around your house!
You are never too old to enjoy a good scavenger hunt! Grab those coloured pencils, get out those crayons and design a treasure map that will have your kids excited to adventure around the home!
